Spiked Speedwell (Beach Speedwell, Garden Speedwell, Veronica Speedwell)

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Spiked Speedwell (Beach Speedwell, Garden Speedwell, Veronica Speedwell)
  • Latin Name: Veronica longifolia; syn. V. spicata, Pseudolysimachion longifolium, P. maritimum
  • Family Name: Plantaginaceae/Scrophulariaceae
As with all the Speedwells, the Spiked Speedwell is high in tannins that are astringent and bitter in taste and can inhibit the absorption of iron, so feed sparingly if at all.
